Comment 6 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2014-04-29 21:24:22 UTC
CVE-2014-2665 (
  includes/specials/SpecialChangePassword.php in MediaWiki before 1.19.14,
  1.20.x and 1.21.x before 1.21.8, and 1.22.x before 1.22.5 does not properly
  handle a correctly authenticated but unintended login attempt, which makes
  it easier for remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information by
  arranging for a victim to login to the attacker's account, as demonstrated
  by tracking the victim's activity, related to a "login CSRF" issue.
